Dear Editor:

Thank you very much for the coverage provided for my Birds Eye View Book Launch, held at Pynelogs Cultural Centre on November 14th.

It was great fun and very heart-warming to see how many people took the trouble to dress in wartime vintage outfits.

Thanks also to Mike Smith and Bruce Childs for their soulful singing of wartime tunes, the Columbia Valley Arts Centre for the use of this beautiful and historic building, and the Invermere Public Library for organizing the event and acting as the local retailer for my book.

Im pleased to report that the first printing of Birds Eye View has sold out, and a second printing has been ordered by my publisher. In the meantime, the library still has books available and I will drop in and sign them if you request a personalized copy.

I will also be selling and signing books at the Christmas Craft Fair, at the Invermere Community Hall, on December 5th and 6th.

I really appreciate the support from the wonderful people in our lovely valley.

Elinor Florence
